Hourglass Brewery Announces First Bottle Release
The Hourglass Brewery has announced its first bottle release slated for May 16th! The first release is Schizandra, a Belgian quad aged in Bourbon Barrels on top of tart cherries! Tastes and smells of raisins, rich toffee, plums, and tart cherries are present in this beer along with some subtle notes of oak and vanilla with a bourbon backbone. Coming in at 10.5% ABV, this gentle sipper will not be one to be taken lightly. You can pre order your bottle here!
